Some look like little blisters and some with scabs.They are small like the size of a tick and some are reddish, all are raised up a little.He is currently on steroids for allergies(hayfever, respiratory type).We dont have fleas and none of the other dogs have these sores only him.He has been acting very unhappy lately too but I thought it was the pills.
Anyone know what this could be? He's had all his shots and hasnt been anywhere different so its not bug bites or a disease.
He has an appointment on the 15th so I can ask the vet then.Im worried it might be something serious, he has never had really good health.
I should add that he is not itchy at all either.

I was thinking maybe hives as well.IDK,I didnt know that hives could get scabbed up though.. Im not sure if I can give him benedryl with his current meds so I was thinking about giving him a bath to see if that helped..Our vet is a mobile clinic, we live out in the country and she doesnt even have a receptionist.I could probably call her but hate to do it unless I thought it was an emergency.She is pretty over worked out here and I feel for her family.
I did wonder if he could be having a reaction to his meds.He has been on steroid/allergy pills for the last week and is just now lowering his dosage.But I cant see him having an allergic reaction to allergy meds?

I got my glasses out and got him under a light and they are blisters.Look kinda like chicken pox, many are busted and scabbed up, plus he has a regular looking rash along with it.Weird.I may just have to call the vet tomorrow anyway.
Wow that poor Maltese has been through a lot lately...Appas cleared up on thier own after about 3 days.I gave him a bath and put some meds on and it just went a way.I wonder if it was a reaction to something he laid in outside...I guess Ive just never seen a rash with blisters like that except with chicken pox.
